San Juan province in western Argentina has announced the construction of the Gran Tulum aqueduct and El Tambolar dam for up to US$550 mm.

El Tambolar is a US$400 mm-450 mm hydroelectric project to be located 19 km from Los Caracoles reservoir, and is the last project expected in San Juan river basin, the provincial government said in a statement.

Uñac said the sewerage system will be 25km long and has a 39mm-peso budget, while the government expects to spend 9.53mm pesos in the revamp of 7km of the water distribution network.

The consortium Perfil-César Borrego Construcciones submitted a bid of 54.8 mm-55.1 mm pesos, while Oscar Menín Construcciones' proposal was for 60.1 mm pesos, Das Construcciones' bid was 55.9 mm pesos, Cicon Construcciones' proposal was 57.9 mm pesos and Federico Hermanos' bid was 41.5 mm pesos.
